I love, love, love the Elephant and Piggie books by author, Mo Willems! These books are FABULOUS to use with students working on basic notions of perspective taking. The simple text, expressive illustrations, and the strategic use of THINKING and TALKING bubbles in the text are perfect for your work with young learners working on social cognitive skills. I used these books this past fall as my first set of read-aloud books during social skills groups. We spent many, many group periods with my Kinder – 3rd grade students reading these books, and exploring how expressive the character’s face is, making predictions about how Elephant or Piggie is feeling at the time, and looking in the text for actual thinking and talking bubbles. At first, for my young students, we were simply identifying the shape of a thinking or talking bubble, and then reviewing the descriptors of what these are (see my previous post on 1/6/2013 for visuals to use for this).

Since there was nothing on the market to meet their needs, I developed a series of educational computer software programs that they could operate on their own by simply pressing the spacebar. I am making these programs available at no charge to any parent or teacher who thinks they may be able to use them. The programs are based on high interest subjects, such as nursery rhymes, holidays, and birthday themes.
